OutSMARTing The Dragon 2015

Good morning, yesterday we reached an agreement to bring OTD back to Fontana Village for 2015. We will have a much better setup this coming year. Event dates will be August 20-23, 2015. Reservations are available now at Fontana and OTD registration will open sometime in early 2015. We looked around for quite a few weeks at other locations but at this time, Fontana is the only location that can support the size of our group with a central location for dinners and car shows.

So this will give smartUSA enough time to coordinate the delivery of one of the first 2015 453's in the U.S. to some lucky buyer.

I asked Eric if we could get one this year (453). Hopefully we can make it happen next year if sc Knox has one.

2016 US production smarts not due until "late 2015" - too late for the Dragon, unless they have a show car available.

Knew that BUT for some who understand Social Marketing 101, OTD could be a perfect YouTube event at which to feature the new 453 surrounded by smart enthusiasts and their 451's.

But for such a thing to happen, smartUSA would have to "want to" and sadly Mr. Schrembi has left the building . . .

What area are we going to use for the dinners and gathering. If we use the Oak room that we used this year it would be best if they removed the huge card tables and had just the long tables so that everyone can sit in the same room for dinner. A couple of pop up canopies would be helpful as well.
Do they charge us (you) for the use of the Oak room?

Not to beat a dead horse, but the US 453 won't be in production until after the Dragon; smart will have some sort of US prototypes on the show car circuit starting in January and might be able to get one for the Dragon - but it won't actually be an actual "new" 453.
